About Kiwi Spearmint - Hosta Roots


Seed Type Root
Also known as Plantain Lily

A dwarf variety staying under two to three feet tall, our Hosta Kiwi Spearmint is a shade-loving plant that does best under a tree canopy or in wooded areas. Because of its smaller size, Kiwi Spearmint Hostas also perform nicely in containers so you can enjoy the lavender flowers come mid summer. Each leaf shows ribbons of green and white giving this hosta a special beauty.
